Alumni Rivalry Day Challenge

PARK ALUMNI, IT’S TIME TO MEET THE CHALLENGE...128 ALUMNI GIFTS UNLOCK $5,000!

On Saturday, October 12, Park School will compete against Friends School in our fourth annual day of athletic competition. (We’re 3-0 so far. Go Bruins!) During one epic day of games, matches, and meets, 128 Park Varsity and Junior Varsity athletes will DEFEND THE DEN.

In honor of Rivalry Day, Park alumni have been issued a challenge. The school will unlock $5,000 contributed by the Board of Trustees if Park receives 128 gifts to The Park Fund from alumni before 11:59 p.m. on October 12. That's one gift for each Bruin Varsity and Junior Varsity athlete competing on Rivalry Day. Donations to The Park Fund support every Park student, every day.

All alumni gifts — of any size — will help us meet our goal, and it all counts, starting now!  You can make an ONLINE GIFT (click here) today. If you prefer VENMO, you can make a gift to @parkschoolbaltimore (please make sure to add your first and last name and graduating year in the notes). 

Thank you, and we hope to see you on campus October 12 to cheer on our athletes!


Name the Bruin

Park School’s Bruin mascot needs a name! The Bruins Athletic Council developed a short list of names that reflects Park's history and/or shows school spirit. We are asking all alumni, current students, and faculty to help NAME THE BRUIN (click here to vote)! Voting will remain open through 11:59 p.m. on October 4, 2019. The name will be revealed on campus Friday, October 11, 2019 before the Rivalry Day matches and shared on Park's social media. Strive On!
